This exciting new book on company law combines theoretical and jurisprudential issues with an up-to-date account of legal developments across the field of company law. The author demonstrates that the needs of shareholders in companies which have dispersed ownership of shares cannot be properly understood without an analysis of the law relating to securities regulation and capital markets.
Company Law is arranged in six sections- Foundation and Theory; The Constitution of the Company; Corporate Governance; Corporate Finance Law; Securities Regulation; Insolvency and Liquidation. Strong coverage of theory and policy is provided, together with analysis of core legal problems at an appropriate depth for modular courses. The role of self-regulation is examined in some depth and discussion of law reform in the shape of the DTI's Company Law Review is included.
A unique feature of this student textbook on company law is the provision of its own companion website for use by both academics and students (please see the address below).

Company Law is essential reading for LLB courses in universities and also covers the requirements of the University of London (External) LLB. The book offers excellent foundation reading for postgraduate LLMs in company and capital markets law and is an excellent critical survey of a dynamic field of law for students qualifying professionally in the fields of accounting, finance and company secretaryship.
